The experience will start with looking at the various carriages – modern and old. Afterwards you will meet the horses and then learn about the parts of the harness and their purpose. You will then harness up one of the horses yourself after being shown how by an instructor. You will then help to put the horses to the carriage before heading out onto the lanes where you will take the reins and drive by yourself. You will drive our modern country wagonnette across a private estate with spectacular countryside scenery. If you wish to have a private individual session you will get 40 minutes of driving time, if the session is shared by 2+ people you will each get 20 minutes driving time.
“This is just to thank you for the wonderful afternoon I spent with you on Saturday, having a carriage driving experience. It was good to take the reins again after many years absence of riding, and to start learning a new and exciting discipline. It was particularly good to 'drive' your two lovely white horses, Tommie and Charlie, who were attentive and responsive, and to be able to go along the country lanes and tracks. The tuition you gave was fun and professional and has wet my appetite for more. We were all also fascinated by your excellent tuition on the harnessing aspects, and learnt a lot. All in all it was an excellent experience which we would highly recommend. Thank you again.”
